How different are tours and photo tours?
Unlike travel agents who plan your holiday based on what is hot in that season with almost no inclination to offer you what you would want to see, Photo Tours are innovative ways to experience a place through the guidance of a professional photographer. All of our photo tours are fun with loads of learning and knowledge sharing. Moreover, since the group consists of photography enthusiasts only it makes your experience your experience more focused and fun filled.
What is the suggested equipment for this tour?
For close up of camels and candid a mid telephoto lens in the range of 70-200mm works best. Wide angle lenses like 10-22 or 16-35 are required to capture the beautiful ambience of the fair and cover the spectacle called Pushkar Mela. If you do not have a wide angle lens, then the most suitable lens is 24-105mm or 24-70mm. The fair ground can be very dusty which can harm your camera, we strongly suggest a dust bag to keep your gear protected when not in use.
What are the pre requisites for this tour?
The only pre-requisites are good health to handle dust and heat and an avid interest for Indian Culture and/or photography.
